9 PERSONAL YEAR
9 Personal Month
One of the fascinating things about Numerology—and about math—is that, whenever you add the number 9 to another number, it always digits down to the same number to which the 9 was added. And the reason I bring this up is because this month’s guide reflects this very rule: During the month of September (9) everyone is experiencing the same number month as their Personal Year number. Funny, eh? So for you who’re in your 9 Personal Year, you’re now also in your 9 Personal Month.
Your Personal Year (9) + The Month of September (9) = 18; 1 + 8 = 9
So you’re doubling the energy you’ve been navigating your entire year so far.
Numerologically speaking, September is a turning point month where you’ll start feeling the inklings of your next phase starting to knock at your internal door. For you, this means saying “good-bye” to the completion energies of your 9 Personal Year and “hello” to another intense year—yet while this year is all about completions and letting go, 2018 will be a year where you’ll start a brand new cycle. So get ready for a noticeable shift in energy—and you could start feeling it as early as October.
Yet what I’d also like to emphasize is that we never just “leave” one theme or energy and enter into something fully and completely different. Optimally, we’re being asked to integrate the lessons and experiences of any given year with the new “theme” coming into play. When we’re able to use the theme of the current year (and the years prior) as building blocks into the next year—well then, that’s the way it should be done. This bodes well for a richer life experience and more satisfaction across the board. So it’s always great when we can see how each year can positively inform the next.
You can’t underestimate the power or importance of this significant shift. You’ve been clearing out the old and making room for the new. Toward the end of September, you’ll start feeling the shifting energies around you as you move into the “new beginnings” energies of the 1 Personal Year. Hopefully you’ve had the willpower to finish and let go of anything and everything that no longer serves your higher good. That can be relationships, job, or geographical locations. It can come in the form of being fired, a divorce, a health crisis, a death in the family. Or a birth, graduation, marriage, move, or other major decision about the direction you want to take. Now you’ll start feeling glimmers of something solid and ahead that may have been eluding you for most of the year.
The fog will begin to part. Yet from October through the end of the year, the fog only lifts in increments. You still can’t see the whole picture of what’s coming next for you. You simply must trust that the Universe is conspiring for you and you’re off and running into your next and higher manifestation.
So that’s a short preview of what’s coming up for you in 2018.
Now back to September.
“How sweet it is to arrive at a new place for the first time. The future stretching out in front of us like a clean, white carpet. There’s the stir and rustle of endless possibility in the air.”
This is a month where you have a permission slip to take inventory—as if you haven’t been doing that enough already. Make a list (a mental list or even write this down) of your passions, sense of purpose, fears, regrets, mistakes, proud moments. All of it. Lay it all out before you. As Blanche DuBois from A Streetcar Named Desire says—“How sweet it is to arrive at a new place for the first time. The future stretching out in front of us like a clean, white carpet. There’s the stir and rustle of endless possibility in the air.”
From September 9th to 18th, keep your focus on your intent to move through this and on to bigger and better things that are now in alignment with the newly evolved you.
Hang on to the sense of endless possibilities, because there’s likely to be a bit of turbulence as you head into the final throes of this cycle of completion. You’ll most likely experience a good deal of emotion and drama this month. The completions that you’ve initiated throughout the year have the potential to finalize through the end of September and beyond. Be prepared for the possibility that important people, significant ventures or other interests may be phased out at this time. Although some of these conclusions may have been on the horizon for months, this may be the “down and dirty” time when there are finalities. No turning back.
From September 9th to 18th, keep your focus on your intent to move through this and on to bigger and better things that are now in alignment with the newly evolved you. Sounds easy enough, right? (not!) Sometime around September 28th or so, you’ll begin to feel the dust settling and feel a sense of new equilibrium. The song Closing Time says it rather eloquently and simply: “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” As these doors are closing, a new door is slowly opening now to introduce you to a new and different chapter. You won’t be anywhere near having all the answers in front of you. And of course that’s what you want so desperately right now. Answers. Clarity. “It.”
As these doors are closing, a new door is slowly opening now to introduce you to a new and different chapter. You won’t be anywhere near having all the answers in front of you.
And potentially, if you’ve been an “early bird” with the energy of your 9 year and have made some large leaps and followed them up with action, well then, perhaps this is the time where you actually do feel more refreshed and on track. If it’s taking a bit longer—which is often the case—then this is a peak month for things to fall away. Personally, I have been a slower study during my own 9 Personal Years. I have experienced pivotal changes during my 9 Personal Years and yet usually I have somehow waited into the final hour to really make the leap. And while there’s nothing inherently wrong with that, certainly there are times when I wished I would’ve cut the cords earlier. Just a little “hindsight is 20/20” unsolicited advice. And yet really, we don’t let something go until the moment we let it go. So trust your own timing.
And don’t forget to allow yourself time for reflection. It’s not time to just blaze right through things with blinders on. With grace, a sense of optimism can begin to take hold. A lighter feeling of excitement can start to sneak into your existence. What are you looking forward to? What can you see for yourself in the next several years? It’s time to clean house—literally and figuratively. This new phase of fresh starts, independence, individuality, and beginnings won’t fully commence until the start of the upcoming year. You’ll see some beautiful shafts of light through the cracks in the door—opening bit by bit—during the next few months.
Also know that—while this is the year of big transitions and can feel emotional and somewhat painful—there are also people who grab a hold of the energy of the 9 Personal Year and ride the wave, giddy and enthusiastic. I’m not kidding. I’ve worked with clients who are going through a 9 Personal Year and when I engage with them about the difficulties, they laugh at me (well, maybe I’m overstating here!). These are the folks whose scenarios go something like this (just an example, although a true story): “I finally got a divorce. I quit the job I hate. I moved to the place I’ve always wanted to live. I’m starting over. I’m free. I’m overjoyed. I can’t wait to create this new life I’ve been dreaming about for so long. And now I’m doing it.”
That can be you. And if it is you—more power to you. If it isn’t you quite yet, know that you’re heading in that direction and give yourself permission to follow your heart. You’ll know what to do by how you feel when you cut past the fear and discomfort that often keeps us hovering in indecision. You can do it.
